The 29-year old superstar is confident that he’ll be able to end things early, especially with a new announcement from the Nevada Athletic Commission on Wednesday that approved the use of 8-ounce gloves, instead of the standard 10-ounce for the 154lbs division.

As a result, the Irish who is also the reigning UFC Lightweight Champion and who is accustomed to wearing 4-ounce gloves in the UFC, believes Mayweather will struggle to make it out of the second round.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if I go out there and flatten him in the first exchange, I don’t see him lasting two rounds in these 8-ounce gloves,” he said.

“Part of me wants to showcase a little more, we’ll see, I don’t believe he will last two rounds – believe he will be unconscious before then,” he added.
